Event description

Description

Sourdough bread is naturally slowly fermented, during that time a magical transformation takes place. The gluten is largely broken down so many people with gluten intolerance can eat slowly fermented sourdough with no digestive upset!


Sourdough benefits
  • Gluten is broken down, so easier to digest
  • Phytic acid is broken down releasing minerals for the body to absorb
  • Made with only 3 ingredients, no dodgy additives and no pesticide residues if you use organic flour
  • Has a lower GI so it keeps your blood sugar stable for longer
  • Acidity keeps sourdough fresher so no need for preservatives
  • It’s delicious and you can vary the level of sourness
  • Its high in resistant starch so considered a prebiotic food, ie food for your gut bacteria!
